by e-mail, it is completely wrong. the u.s. postal service is not the victim of e-mail and text messages. it is the victim of alec and the koch brothers. why, you ask? quite simple, really. the usps is the number one employer of unionized labor in the united states and provides an affordable universal service that a private company could and would charge us all much, much more for. two huge no-nos for the right wing. the reason the right wing crafted the legislation to destroy the postal service. we're joined now by nationally and internationally syndicated radio host the brilliant thom hartmann who wrote an incredible piece about this very subject for truth out.org called the usps media hashtag fail. >> great to be with you. >> john: please complain what the postal accountability enhancement act is and what its effects have been. >> well, you know, there were some reasonable and some good changes in that act which is -- as far as i can tell, how it got out of the house government oversight committee henry waxman and other democrats basically signing of on it. it was passed by a
, february 22. the president will meet with the japanese prime minister today. u.s.-japanese trade is among the top issue -- top issues. the league debate on spending, taxes, and budget. that will be the focus of much of next week's debate in washington. one week to do -- one week to go until sequestration -- will it matter? here are the numbers -- join the conversation on facebook and twitter.com. sanders said -- send us an email. what is the definition of sequestration? one is this -- it is that fiscal policy procedure adopted by congress to deal with the federal budget deficit. that is according -- some news over the last 24 hours as the president reaches out to republican leaders in the house and senate. a phone conversation between the president and republican leaders mitch mcconnell and john boehner. our guest follows the story for the hill newspaper. what news came out of these phone conversations? guest: not much from the press secretary or congressional leaders. they have been very tight- lipped. it is interesting to say that things do seem to be heating up little bit. congress wil
department cuts, according to this forced budget plan cut. just for some perspective, the u.s. is going to spend $88 billion this year, this year in afghanistan. we're going to have much more on this part of the story coming up later, barbara. thanks very much into here in washington, president obama is doing an end around the national press today. he's taking questions from local tv stations, blaming congress for doing nothing to avoid these forced spending cuts scheduled to take effect in just nine days. so what kind of cuts is the president willing to take? jim acosta confronted the white house press secretary today with that question. jim is joining us now. how did it go? >> reporter: wolf, here we go again. the white house and congress move one day closer to the massive forced spending cuts that go into effect at the end of next week. and even though they both agree it's a problem, they are both busy blaming each other to fix it. the white house sounding the alarm. poor children will be tossed out of classrooms, health services will be slashed, border security will be compromised a
political contributor the democratic strategist hilary rosen and the former u.s. senator from minnesota and former romney foreign policy adviser norm coleman. guys, thanks very much for coming in. the speaker just met with reporters on the hill. i'll play a little clip. this was his message. >> listen, hope springs eternal. the president can sit down with harry reid tonight and work with senate democrats who have the majority in the senate to move a bill. it's time for them to act. i've made this clear for months now. and yet we've seen nothing. >> now, he wants them, senator, to move legislation that passed in the last congress. the last congress is irrelevant right now. you need new legislation in order to pass a bill. >> wolf, what's not irrelevant is last congress we had the tax increase. so now it's spending cut time. the president doesn't want to to the spending cut. we had the tax increase -- >> right now, to avert this fiscal crisis we have right now, these forced spending cuts, you need a new bill. you can't use a bill from the old congress. >> the president -- you know what, a
immigrants who are illegal in the u.s., and securing the border, a fault of the 1986 bill, the president and congress did not do enough. caller: 40% of the illegal immigration problem comes from our airports. they overstay their visas. nobody makes them leave. the people of the world know that once you are in america, nobody makes you leave. until that changes, we are going to have out of control immigration, overpopulation, relative to the economy, we will have a rising levels of poverty, lower standards of living. a pro-immigrant admit is that they will all be entrepreneurs and they will all start the next google. that is a myth. host: cindy has this on our twitter page -- way, a reminder that we will have live coverage of the president's state of the union address on the c-span networks, including radio. our prie-dieu will get underway at around 8:00 eastern. we will kory-error the president's speech at approximately 11:00 eastern time. -- re-air the president's speech at approximately 11:00 eastern time. there is this -- as a reminder, let's go to the president's state of the union a
that testified on the hill and sequester cuts would create a significant head wind to the u.s. economy and john boehner, the house speaker, fired back at president obama and said the problem isn't the house. they pass alternatives to sequester last year and the problem is the senate hasn't acted. here is the speaker. >> we have moved the bill in the house twice. we should not have to move a third bill before the senate gets off their ass and begins to do something. >> both sides have those arguments but only one side is winning this argument so far as we see in our new nbc "wall street journal" poll tonight. when you ask americans whether or not president obama is using to unify the country or in a partisan way by 48-43 he is trying to unify the country and republicans overwhelmingly the public says are doing the opposite. only 22% say they are bringing it together and 64% in a partisan fashion that does not unify the country, larry, and this is what democrats are counting on is that the pressure over time by a public that's predisposed to blame republicans is going to make them buckle on taxes
the collapse of euro and connection with the u.s., first the u.s. has a lot of investment in europe, so, i mean, these kind of uncertainty, they trigger and they spill out, but there is another big thing. and the u.s. based a lot of kind of prospective growth on experts and when you don't export. when the countries are buying your stuff are doing really, really badly, that's another kind of channel for trouble for us. >> and one last one. i'm told that austerity is the result of spending cuts in europe. is that accurate? >> hardly. hardly. i mean, there are some countries who actually cut spending a little bit, but these countries have also overwelcomingly increased taxes. >> that's it. it's a tax increase as opposed to a spending cut produced this misery? >> and by the way, alberto al seena of harvard and some of the co-authors have shown this is the worst way to reduce debt to gdp ratio. this balanced approach, the president likes, the mix-up can prevent spending cuts, but absolutely real tax increases. stuart: veronique de rugy, you make a lot of sense. you'll be back. and nicole? >> macy's,
much. there's not much disagreement about the need. i've never met a democrat or a republican u.s. been a governor who does not think the american people should have a sense that hard work will be read -- rewarded. the work party have an opportunity. i do not know of any men and women that are a better living example of that and all be sitting in front of me. we all use the phrase move forward in a balanced way. another man's a balance is another is in balance. that is what we have got to talk about. the one thing i do not think any of the lack is a vision about how great this country can be. we ought to be able to reassert ourselves in a way that we own the 21st century. i know the guy i am about to introduce believes that but you do. let me injured -- introduce you to the president was back with the pastry chef. my friend, barack obama. >> thank you. have a seat. thank you. welcome. thank you for being here. we all have a lot on our plate. everything from our immigration system our education system our goal is to make sure that we can be an effective partner with you. i want to thank
than the sequester. but don't put 50% of the cuts on the u.s. military. >> oh, by the way, the u.s. military is in virginia. i mean, this is a classic comment right there. you know, he wants all these spending cuts, but don't do it in my backyard. i mean, that's where they are. they're self-serving in many regards, and this is why the country can't stand government right now, can't stand the congress. >> well, look, it's total head-spinning, ed. here is the republican line. if you cut defense spending so you have fewer people building ships and things like that, that loses jobs. >> yeah. >> and frankly, it does. but if you cut transportation spending or you cut head start programs, somehow that doesn't hurt jobs. that somehow miraculously grows the economy. we know that's not the case. what republicans want to do here is what they tried in europe and failed. >> yeah. >> they tried this cut and grow. and what they got was cut and shrink. their economies are going down. they're in double-dip recessions. and that's the kind of medicine they want to prescribe here at home now. it won't

to the last caller whenever he was talking about the drone initiative. let me just say this. i'm a u.s. sailor, retired. disabled veteran. and it kills me that folks who have never been in the military want to talk about how we conduct business. >> stephanie: right. thomas i've gotten a lot of e-mails and calls with the same point basically that the military's going to use whatever tools they have at their disposal to save lives. most soldiers say it saves a lot of american soldiers' lives. >> caller: that's what it's supposed to do. >> stephanie: tom what i'm saying is i get the point as americans, we don't care about civilian casualties. we do. we always historically have. it is not wrong that it troubles people right? >> caller: right. it's not wrong but in the same sense, whenever you go to yemen and you teach people how to kill us you commit an act of treason. you get put on that list. and to make another point see it took our president two years to find osama bin laden. george bush and dick cheney and rumsfeld, we had him in afghanistan. then they called us off. but like the last caller
opinion on chuck hagel's long-awaited confirmation saying the u.s. has the secretary that our troops deserve. it was close but lawmakers did confirm hagel 58 to 41. he is scheduled to be sworn in today. that means hagel now heads into office with a list of challenges ahead. first up, the sequester hits friday friday. without a deal, the defense department is facing about $46,000,000,000 in cuts before the end of september. that means hundreds of thousands of furloughed civilians and cuts that will affect military equipment and ness. hagel will also need to deal with getting the troops out of afghanistan and compromising with republicans. that last part won't come easy. texas senator john cornyn has made it clear hagel is taking office with the least amount of support as any defense secretary in modern history. we will be right back. 9am eastern. >> i'm a slutty bob hope. >> you are. >> the troops love me.

: it appears the questions on brennan go directly to the u.s. policy on drones. we had rand paul on yesterday, the senator from kentucky. he is adamant that he will not allow brennan to go forward unless he answers a simple question. and that is, whether or not it is u.s. policy and u.s. law to use a drone over american skies and target americans here at home. what is your view on that? >> well, bottom line, i think senator paul has every right to have his questions answered. you're putting someone in a position in the cia that obviously is going to be making decisions that affect everyday americans not only here but abroad. he has that right to have those questions answered. we need to have a full disclosure from the administration as to what the policy is going to be. listen, i don't have a problem when somebody leaves their citizenship at the door and they're overseas and they have taken up arms against the united states of america. and they clearly are trying to hurt americans not only here but abroad, to use drones. i've been public on that already. the question comes what about here in
good job in controlling healthcare spendingyet more sequester grief. >> the u.s. travel association and congressional staff aids concur that with the budget sequester, one hour will be added to security wait at the nation's biggest and busiest airports. and after clearing the security lines, they will probably wait even longer because of cuts in federal aviation staff, meaning a cut-back in air traffic controllers. connecting passengers, beware. >> question. this is four, susan. concentrate on it. what makes this travel torment unlikely to come to pass? >> first of all, it's -- it doesn't have to come to pass. the tsa can cut money where it wants. it's a question of whether, as i said before, the president wants to use this to pressure the republicans by putting as much pain as possible on the public, therefore the public gets upset, but that's only going to work for so long for the public is going to figure out this is a political tactic and it could really back fair on the administration. i think they're keenly aware of that, and that's part of the reason why they might be a littl

a class on u.s. defense budgeting. at georgetown, we do care about these issues and we share your concerns, as well. in the defense budget of 2013, i understand 19% of the budget is being represented for personnel. about 26% is for procurement. 40% is for operations. if you look at all the different accounts for which the budget is requested, and the sequestration cuts across the board will affect seriously to the manpower, the modernization, and the leadership of the military. i have reviewed a lot of documents of the defense budget for many years in the past. i do not see a way how we can cut the defense budget. i do not see a way how sequestration will occur and not affect these three crucial defense-related areas. now, knowing that only around 4% of the gdp is being constituted by the base defense budget, and a bulk of the gdp -- >> we agree on your fax. what is the question?

in this afternoon that the white house will urge the u.s. supreme court to allow gay marriage in california. what can you tell us about that development? >> reporter: right. the obama administration announcing that it is going to file a friend of the court brief on behalf of the same-sex couple at the center of the prop 8 case with the supreme court. this is significant, martin, because when president obama came out and said that he supported same-sex marriage, you might remember that he also said he thought that it wasn't a matter for the federal government to handle. this essentially represents a shift, suggests that he believes that the federal government should be involved in this to some extent. so that is why this is really significant. in terms of timing, the supreme court hears these cases in late march so you can expect them to hear the case in late march and then decide likely sometime over the summer. >> nbc's kristin welker, thank you as always. -let's get to our panel. lehigh university professor james peterson is a krnter for thegrio.com and an msnbc contributor and jared bernstein
